The Beatles Singles Collection Due in November

Apple Corps. has announced that The Beatles – The Singles Collection, featuring remastered 7-inch vinyl reissues of all 22 singles released in the U.K. between 1962 and 1970, ships November 20.

The limited-edition box set ($230), available now for pre-order, comprises 46 tracks on 23 vinyl singles with “faithfully reproduced international picture sleeves,” including a new “double A-Side single” with the 1995-96 releases “Free As A Bird” and “Real Love.” The set also includes a 40-page booklet featuring photos, memorabilia, and essays by Beatles historian Kevin Howlett.

All of the singles were produced from original mono and stereo master tapes by Abbey Road mastering engineer Sean Magee and cut on 180-gram vinyl.

The collection offers a fascinating look at the band’s groundbreaking creative arc — from the 1962 debut single “Love Me Do” / “P.S. I Love You” to the 1970 finale, “Let It Be” / “You Know My Name (Look Up The Number),” with 1967’s “Strawberry Fields Forever” / “Penny Lane” in between.

Amazing fact: 29 of the 44 A/B-side tracks released between 1962 and 1970 were not included on British albums released at that time.

• 1962 – Love Me Do / P. S. I Love You (U.S.)
